ALWAYS check Heatware Refs!

There has been a number of scammers attempting to impersonate established traders by referring to Heatware accounts they don't actually own. You should always email the person's registered Heatware email address to verify that the person you are dealing with is in fact who they say they are!

Be very wary of new members who contact you through the PM system!

Thanks, I signed up as well. If you plan on BST, I would highly suggest you get an account as it only benefits you more!

I signed up with them using gmail accounts and never got the confirmation email. I think I've signed up with them at least 2x and it's getting annoying for me.

Am I the only one experiencing this?

I'd prefer to keep my yahoo/hotmail accnts free from this because I like gmail's setup more for communication. =(

Also with regards to Heatware, beware there were people living negative feedback to people who they never dealt with.


Is it possible to have a RFD feedback system?

Most definately. vBulletin..the forum engine has a module or WHATever it's called., 'plug-in' that provisions for this.

Whether the admins want to integrate it....is another issue altogether. Start a thread recommending it.

Make a poll with two options. Yes, No. Question is., do we want an internal RFD Feedback system?

I do believe I brought it up previously., and it didn't take off...though I didn't make it exclusively on this thread subject alone. It was touched on in a subsequent post to the scammer thread., where I screenpicked a couple proposed options on this plug-in.

I actually just registered to do a transaction, i was looking to leave feedback for the seller and couldn't find any, so i just registered on Heatware also.
Also i thought this was a good time to make my first post.
Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people. :idea:

Can I help trouble-shoot it please. I've been known to be QUITE efficient at detecting 'issues'.

I have references (namely a couple of your own mods).

interesting, but what about people with existing heatware feedback? Do we have to build that up over again ?

(I guess we could ask the previous people that we did transactions for to leave feedback again)..........hahha oh man........
